Kitties and Batties!

THREE APPLES // hello kitty goth party!

The Hello Kitty celebration ended for me at the Bats & Cats Masquerade, hosted by the super BubblePunch team… but what a EPIC, FABULOUS last party, it was!

I arrived at Royal/T Cafe at around 8pm after work that night and the line was already insanely long!!! Wow!!! An indication of how the cafe would be constantly crowded throughout the night!!! It was a little scary.

Inside, some of us relished the opportunity to move around and talk as the crowd slowly trickled in. I got my drink on before I worked to help moderated the line for the Hello Kitty photo booth. People sure got restless every time Hello Kitty went on a break…

I got the ‘Black Cat’ drink, by the way. It was really yummy.

After a couple of hours, I was relieved of duty and was allowed to prance around the crowd to take some photos. I ran into so many familiar faces that night! I’m so happy they all made it (and made it in inside, for that matter…). I was on my feet and talking every minute to so many people that my voice was GONE by the end of the night… and for that rest of the weekend. That’s how you party, people. Ha.

Seriously, Michelle and True Mee did an amazing job putting the whole shebang together. I can’t imagine organizing anything to that extent (okay, so I did it ONCE and I learned my lesson, that’s for sure XD)– over 1000 people attended! Big kudos to them and all the people that helped them out.

Checking on my friends, waiting in line– they were troopers for waiting it out for so long.

When Missy and Lisa finally made it in, things got a little silly…

Three Apples : Happy Birthday, Hello Kitty!

Three Apples//VIP Party! Sanrio celebrates Hello Kitty’s 35th  birthday with an ongoing celebration centralized around Royal-T Cafe in Culver City, California. Several parties are going on throughout the rest of this month and next month; check their website for the schedule and details!

Last night, thanks to the ladies of Bubble Punch, I got to attend the opening VIP party! The night didn’t start off too well as we stood in line for almost over an hour, waiting to be allowed inside. They had invited too many people and the fire marshals declared the venue at over capacity. They had to stop letting people in…! Fortunately, our heroine, Steph came to our rescue and we were able to go in earlier than we had imagined!

Three Apples//VIP Party! The wait was completely worth it, to be honest. Not only was Royal-T decked to the bones with Hello Kitty decorations and paraphernalia, the crowd was awesome, amazing artwork, great music, free food, and… OPEN BAR, BABY! There was also a bit of a celebrity hubbub at the event (attendees included Paris Hilton, Kimora Lee Simmons, Dave Navarro, Yoshiki from X Japan etc.), but personally… I was too busy loving on all the Hello Kitty toys and merchandise…!!! My inner-twelve years old was in heaven!!! There was even a trailer home with a Hello Kitty theme; including a soft, pink, fluffy bed!

More Hello Kitty fun will come as the events happen, so stay tuned!

Japanology : BOSOZOKU

I never got around to posting about this event— better late than never, I guess! Royal-T Cafe, Bubblepunch and Zippercut host a monthly(ish) event called ‘Japanology’. Each month, they pick a topic of focus about one of Japan’s many, and most of the time deviant, subcultures. In September, I attended a movie screening and lecture about Bosozoku, aka biker gangs in Japan!

There was a small photo booth set up with a vintage motorcycle as prop for the models. It was fun hanging out and pretending to be a ‘yanki‘ for the night.

I admit, I use to daydream about joining a Japanese girl biker gang! This was as close as I could get, I guess…
